This class focuses on art from around the world.  I share my travels from around the globe with students.  Then, we research and create art from those countries.  When I share Egypt, we make paper.   After hearing about West Africa, we create African masks.  Once they see Peru we try our hands at clay. 

Instead of showing samples of art work, I decided to share the stories from my travels-- and my stories are not like normal travelers.  Not many of people have served in the Peace Corps, been jailed (no matter how innocently), experienced an attack by  rogues with knives, or survived both malaria (5 times!) and a couple of wrecks (Haiti and Ivory Coast).
